president al gore talking about hurricane katrina in his 2006 academy winning documentary, an inconvenient truth. the movie for those of you who have not seen it, warns us that due to climate change, we will experience many more super storms like sandy which forecasters say was the largest hurricane in atlantic history. climate change deniers will say the weather has always been weird. here are some inconvenient truths that they may want to consider. in the 1970s, there were just an average of under eight named storms per year. named storms like the a b c. in the 198hehe ample w ju ju u uerer nine ---- the average was just under nine per year. in the 1990s, it was about 11 named storms per year. in the 2000s it jumped to nearly 15 storms a year and get this, in the first three years of this decade, 2010, 2011, 2012 the average is just under 19. specifically, we had 19 named storms in 2010. we had 18 in 2011 and so far we've had 19 named storms and there is an entire month left in hurricane season this year
at $46 billion. of course this will be about half of katrina's damage. and of course we know what katrina today and especially the new orleans area. so this is rare territory. and this was a category 1. at one time katrina a category 5. 3 at landfall. so just shows you what happens. even if it's a category 1, if you go in to a very populated area of the country is where this storm made landfall and that's why these numbers are astronomical for on the insurance industry. the loss is just insane. so the storm still lingers today. the damage is all done. a lot of the heavy snow is just about overwith. west virginia, some areas got two to three feet of snow. it remains kind of stuck, though, because the weather pattern that enabled this storm to come at us from the ocean, from the unusual direction, the high pressure, the blocking responsible for this mess is still sitting off the coast. it will take two or three days for the storm to slowly weaken and head up in to canada, but it's a cold morning for everyone without power. there is some of that snow still left over in the mountains of west
probably the worst hurricanes in the gulf coast in the last 40 years: ivan, dennis, katrina. and katrina i was the commander of the medical forces in pensacola, florida, and i owned the branch clinics that existed in new orleans, pascagula and gulf port, mississippi. we thought we had dodged the bullet and then the levies broke and who would have predicted that there was a sea of humanity in the super dome that basically was in extreme miss? who would have predicted in this day and age we would lose many, many people based on the fact they couldn't be medevacked, that the hospitals themselves had been flooded and the hospital staff was having to carry critically ill patients up to the top floors to avoid the water that was filling in the rooms. who would have predicted that? and were we set up to handle that? and who would have predicted in the early goings there would be civic disorder and civic disobedience and lack of command and control and then the military came there and provided that stability for a while until the civic authorities took over and eventually got things moving in
at the city of the site of a client. that city was new orleans. this was a few weeks after hurricane katrina, which we all know will be probably the greatest civil engineering set of blunders that our country has made in our country's history. and what we all learn from hurricane katrina is what happens when we don't have a community that is prepared and a set of relationships that is ready to be hit by the big one. which leads me to the third reason why i wake up at night. the neighborhoods that i represent in the northeast not only represent the oldest neighborhoods in our city, but some of the most vulnerable. we have some of the poorest residents. half of my district are recent immigrants who are mono lingual. i have hundreds of constituents who live in buildings that contain them where they live three, four, five people in a room that might be no larger than 10 by 15 feet, in buildings that are absolutely prone to earthquake, fire, and the next major disaster. and, so, i was asked to just mention if i had three things that i want you to tell us as your civilian leaders. the first has to
costs will surpass those from hurricanes irene and katrina. although there are countless businesses hurt, others could see a boost. erika miller reports. >> reporter: when you consider the massive amounts of flooding, downed trees, and damage to transportation networks, it could take days-- if not weeks, to tally up the financial costs from the storm. but already there are predictions sandy will be the most expensive clean-up in u.s. history. the most serious damage appears to be caused by flooding along the east coast. according to economic tracking firm i.h.s. global insight, property damage will likely surpass $20 billion. add to that as much as $30 billion in lost business, and the total financial toll could end up being close to $50 billion. hotels, stores, airlines, and restaurants have lost business they wot get back. insurance companies will have to make big payouts, which will likely mean higher insurance premiums for customers down the road. here in new york city, commerce has been crippled. and power is not expected to be restored in many areas until next week. i.h.s. global p
hurricane katrina under george w. bush, it was an absolute disaster because the guys don't believe in government. so when you put them in charge of government, they do a horrible job. that shouldn't be surprising. now, romney and ryan say oh, no, it's okay. even if we're going to cut it by 40%, a romney-ryan administration will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need. period. now, isn't that great? that's just basically the same old romney-ryan lie. i'm going to cut it by 40% but it will be exactly the same. no it won't! you'll cut it by 40%. it will be a disaster, literally! and then we turn to noaa's analysis in 2011 of what the cuts would do. they say without data from the satellite closest to the end of its shelf life, the accuracy of its forecasts for major storms like blizzards and hurricanes would be decreased by approximately 50%. and that's not just hey i can't tell what the weather's going to be like or i can't exactly tell where the storm's going to hit. it has ramifications.
, unprecedented. the total cost exceed that of katrina? liz macdonald joins us for a live report and also to assess what is likely in store for investors on wall street tomorrow as well. much more straight ahead. stay with us. ♪ ♪ lou: well, what was once hurricane sandy continues to weaken tonight as the system makes it strike across pennsylvania into southern canada, the worst of sandy's winds are over as the -- what is now called the super storm heads, but windy conditions will continue over the great lakes into tomorrow. forecasters saying the higher elevations of northern west virginia could also get as much as 8 inches of additional snow overnight. well, the trail of destruction, as we reported to you at the outset, leaving at least 39 people dead in this country. more than 8 million customers are without power on the east coast and the economic effects will not be known for some time. joining us now to assess the impact that this circuit will have on the economy, we are joined by fox news editor liz macdonald. let's start with just the straightforward. i mean, the markets close
it will be sold for a plot of property on the beach. >> did we learn enough from katrina? it seems that people did evacuate, but we didn't have the same problems post-katrina that we did last time in terms of people getting to safety ahead of the storm. from your observation, do you think that's accurate? >> i think all of our professional forecasters -- boy, did they get the right. a week out, they knew this tropical system was going to explode, the way it did take this left hook into new jersey. it has been katrina-esque. the man holding the camera, dwyane scott, was with me in new orleans overnight for that storm. for weeks thereafter, we've been talking about it nonstop today. we may have to rethink some of our shoreline rules and definitions. we've got governors of three states, christie, malloy, cuomo, those three states are talking about a new shoreline and maybe a new normal. maybe we need our folks at the weather channel to tell us, is this a 200-year storm or the start of 200 years worth of storms like this. >> is there a spirit of rebuilding here? do you hear frit the locals? have you b
it in policy over the years and certainly things have advanced since 9/11 and hurricane katrina, but there has been a real gap in detailed preplanning for emergency response, particularly as it works its way down the chain into the tactical forces that would respond, most specifically i think those on active duty. this is an area that we don't tend to pay a lot of attention to and very often when it comes we tray to look the other way. i believe that we have been reasonably responsive in immediate response, immediate response by doctrine and policy are military dod authorities moving out their gates into their neighborhoods when a disaster hits right next door. i mean, that seems to make sense. we have good relationships at our bases and stations and the ability to roll out and assist is something you would expect to work out pretty well. some of that has matured, in fact. in the state of california we have established a number of agreements, most particularly the wildfires where both third fleet and the expeditionary force assign helicopters in the need we are requested, it's pre-planned, o
experiences are chronicled in the book, the great delusion. >> well, we did have the 2005 hurricane katrina which devastated the gulf south america. we had 2000 people killed in that disaster. we have never had something like this, and actual disaster. what was learned from katrina is that george w. bush got a lot of phones down for doing a flyover and for not going into louisiana. for acting like he could look at it from a distance. all politicians have learned from his mistakes. uc barack obama cancelling his campaign, going to new jersey, and meeting with chris christie, a republican. most people in the u.s. he has done a good job. he was talking with the army corps as engineers. in that regard, it has helped, getting all the face time on the television when you don't see much of mitt romney. >> it has been striking, hasn't it, to see him with the governor and listening to the two of them congratulate and thank each other in this campaign we have seen such bitter politics. to see a democrat and republican coming together like this. >> that is supposed to be the best of america, when ther
to start rebuilding. up next we have an expert from katrina. >> another look at the damage and devastation after sandy. >> it is now quarter past the hour. it is now just a pile of broken concrete. peter doocy has been down there the past few days. he is in delaware to tell us a little bit about the situation the there>> >> 8.1 million people are still without power. that will be something that continues to be a problem as the days go on. right now it is cold outside. it is 43-44 degrees here in delaware on the boardwalk f. you don't have power you don't have any heat. boardwalk is a little bit sandy different stories of the boardwalk is completely splintered in some cases. folks who are familiar with the boardwalk are not going to remember it or they are not going to recognize it when they go back to visit later on. residents know they are very lucky to have avoided that kind of devastation. >> we were very fortunate. we thank god that the storm went north of us. we never expected new york was going to get anything worse. the city came through much better than anything any of us could hav

you wondering whether private enterprise can work, we know from walmart and katrina it works. >> walmart and budweiser, gave truckloads of water, not necessarily beer, i know you were disappointed with that. but think of katrina, $2,000 debit cards they worked out well, people went out and bought tattoos and flat screen tvs, we have the mobile homes,. neil: in the mud. >> they sold them for a deep discount, and lost about a billion in that. governor jindal from new orleans, was complaining that federal government messes it up every step of the way, how could you expect them to do well, we could do much better if you just gave us the money, that is what mitt romney says, get federal bureaucrats out. neil: when this came out today, his back up against the wall, what to you say governor? do you say no fema? what do you think he should say. >> right now, it is a very delicate time, i'm not a politician, i say fema screws it up just about every time they get hole of it since they began in carter administration, whether it is a republican or a democrat, but still screwed up, and th
-- for hurricane isaac and hurricane katrina seven years ago -- both hit, i want to point out here both hit during the week of the homosexual event called southern decadence in new orleans. >> this makes me a bad homo, but i have never even heard of southern decadence. >> it sounds cool. >> we let the straights in. >> i'm in. >> bill: how big of you. >> what it is is that we have a hot line to god, and we're pulling the strings behind the scenes. >> bill: i got it. you know zap him. there are four important ballot measures on the ballot this year, dealing with marriage equality, maryland maine, washington state is the -- well they are all big. >> yeah. >> bill: and then minnesota. what is the difference? >> minnesota's is a constitutional -- anti-gay constitution issue. that would ban it. the other ones are affirmative, right? to maryland and washington both passed in the state legislature marriage equal this year but then anti-gay folks got enough signatures to get enough signatures to put it on the ballot. in maine it was sort of a heart breaker. so everybody is real c
it was katrina or other events we've actually been able to bring in national guard platforms to provide 911 systems for cities that have lost those systems. we recently in the joplin tornados and also tuscaloosa tornados we brought in dod equipment to replace what was destroyed. from the fire side i know there's a lot of things you are doing to work around the interoperatability issues with regard to communications between fire and dod and maybe if ray or anybody else wants to speak to that. >> our communications challenges still exist. we have excellent telecom communications, we have a layered effect of our radio systems. we have mobile command posts that we can exercise. so we're prepared for power outages, reduction of telecoms, we have a layered effect for our communications. but as everybody here said, we need help. if somebody here can help me get a navy or marine corps aircraft to talk to my guys on the ground tactically, i need that and i don't have that today. i use a command control helicopter, a civilian helicopter, to handle that and transfer that to an air to air victor
katrina. he says relief money was spent on bags and massage parlors. one of the things we thought you should know. but first, today nate silver of "the new york times" forecasted president obama had 77% chance of winning re-election and now 299 votes and governor romney 239. >>> welcome back. president obama was supposed to be in ohio today before canceling the visit due to hurricane sandy and the damage caused. despite being off the trail, the latest poll of ohio voters gives the president a five-point edge and seems to show growing optimism about the economy of white working class voters and could be the reason seeing him hold on to the lead and, quote, if you look at the body language of the campaign hard not to conclude they believe they're behind. and if they believe ohio is a be all end all then they're behind. let's bring in editor mark murray. before we talk about the poll, i want to play what vice president joe biden said regarding this car ad or auto ad running brought to you by the romney campaign and called misleading and slammed by gm and chrysler. let me play it. >> they
process while short term may be an issue for markets over the longer term as seen with katrina where you possibly could see better economic growth after this quarter. >> we'll see about that. that's a really important point. doug, only about one-third of the earnings have beaten expectations, lower than average of the past four quarters. is this an indication of what the markets are headed? we've got one month out of the three months for the fourth quarter in the books. what is your expectation for november and december? >> well i think the economy is slowing. that's clear and you know, when you're doing 1% or 2% gdp growth, it's tough to find 10% earnings growth by cutting expenses but ultimately i think the market's priced for that. we're not trading a market that's 20 times earnings, we're in a market that's 12 times earnings. i think expectations are low. if there was a surprise in october for us and it's something we've been hoping for, if you're at riverfront, you're going to see outperformance overseas so for four years the u.s. has kicked the rest of the world's butt, in other wo
katrina. once they finish their work they are expected to be sent north to help with new jersey and new york. all of us are looking at trees differently. we had a contractor killed when a tree fell on him on homewood avenue. the victim died at scene. firefighters said the man was part of the crew contracted to clean up trees in the area. >>> in towson they were working to remove a tree that came down on this house. with all the rain that we have seen from sandy, the tree service got the truck stuck and had to deeing that out. >> sandy's down -- winds down trees. at one point more than 5 roads were closed -- 50 roads were closed. >>> let's go to millers island. testify that been through storms. people said isabelle was the worst storm for them. with sandy they were pleased with how the storm came back. >> i thought the power would be out by 3:00 in the afternoon. it -- it came back on at 3:30 in the morning. if they had said a few days, i would have been happy with that. >> millers island did see damage. >>> drivers had to be rerouted on york road in cockeysville. it exposed a hole in th
. >> very interesting. i have a question, both lewis and i were down at katrina right after it happened and one of the issues, you know, there were many medical issues. one was pharmaceuticals. did you discuss in this pharmaceuticals and how you would get your pharmaceuticals? >> we didn't specifically discuss it. we did i think in the shock trauma platoon know about what medications are carried on the c130, what medications were available. during the hhs presentation there was talk about the large manufacturers, if there were problems getting medications, that the federal government could facilitate that. but it is a great point. it's something locally we are working on with our pharmaceutical group because it is a big concern if we do lose supply how do we replenish that. san francisco does not have a lot of storage space so we are not able to store medications to a great extent in the area. >> i was just going to echo, our capability does come with its own internal pharmaceutical supply, although it is limited and so that would be important for us to understand what the resupply
remains filled with water and must be pumped out. >> and massive pumps used in hurricane katrina have begun to drain the opportunity el there. kennedy airport will reopen on a restricted basis today but la guardia is still under power and newark doesn't even have power. amtrak could have limited service today. as for the subways, engineers will have to inspect the 600 miles of track once the water is pumped out of there. >>> in sports, the wizards open the regular season with john wall on the bench nursing an injury. the cavs would jump to a 16- point lead. they drop the opener, 94-846789 the home opener is saturday night against the celtics. there goes your 82-0 start for the wizards. >> okay. we still have plenty ahead. >> fox 5 morning news at 4:30 starts now. happy wednesday. it is october 31st. a live look outside right now at the washington monument as people try to recover and get back to some sense of normalcy after what we've been through in the last couple of days with hurricane sandy. i'm sarah simmons. >> i'm wisdom martin. welcome to fox 5 morning news. the federal govern
what's happening there reminds him of katrina. gary, tell me why you believe that. >> reporter: piers, this is a city of 50,000 people right across the hudson river in new york city. yes, it does remind me of hurricane katrina because behind us, we have 50% of hoboken flooded and there are, according to the mayor, thousands of people in their apartments and homes who can't get out right now. so we actually went on a front loader with the mayor, they're using front loaders who rescue people. what's different about this than new orleans, what we saw in katrina in 2005 when we went down streets in boats, there are no casualties. that's the good news. but they're still not 100% sure. people can't leave their homes, not only because the water's deep but because there's live power lines in the water. so as we're going down the street in the front loader we see people waving from the windows, children, men, women, and most of them seem to have smiles on their faces because they have seen the water recede. in new orleans the water kept getting higher. this water is receding but people are wai
in a time of disaster. quite different from now democrats treated president bush after katrina. this from james. fitting it tacks an act of god to finally spotlight romney's weaknesses. thank you for your responses and joining me today. "cnn newsroom" continues right now with ashleigh banfield. >> thank you so much. it's 11:00 on the east coast. 8:00 a.m. on the west coast. recovery is a word you are going to be hearing a lot of in the next few days. the word normalcy, not so much. in the wake of superstorm sandy, normal life is a far off dream for so many millions in the northeast corridor and points west. worst of all, a still growing toll of lives lost. at least 40 in the u.s. one so far in canada. more than 6 million homes and businesses still don't have electricity but that is a big improvement from yesterday. and while floods and surges with some exceptions have gone down, that just makes the devastation all the more apparent. you are looking at point pleasant beach halfway between new york and atlantic city on the new jersey shore. president obama visiting these scenes this afterno
it before. went through the tornados, 9/11, katrina, the weather stories of the past two years have been incredible. i think you will see again in the aftermauth of the storm, so often the worst of mother nature tend to bring out the best in humanity and think we will see >>> this morning on "world news now" -- after the perfect storm. >> with a mixture of determination and disbelief, millions of people reeling from hurricane sandy are taking th i very long recovery. realizing what has been lost and changed forever. >> we will rebuild it. no questionen my mind. we will rebuild it. but for those of us who are my age it went beep the same. >> the numbers are staggering. but they only begin to tell the story. at lea 50 dead, more than 8 million without power, tens of billions of dollars in damage. and the resilient people of new york city are once again forced to find a way to cope. >> and we saw the river coming toward us. and it, it actually looked like -- something out of a -- a movie. it was -- it was unbelievable. >> later today, president obama will visit parts of new jersey that bore

estimates. they're saying $50 billion. just to put this into perspective. katrina, with all the fatalities and the horrible scene with that, that was the worst ever at $106 billion. that was crazy. these numbers are adjusted for inflation. sandy up there with hurricane andrew. that was a category 5. sandy was a category 1 and did $50 billion estimated in damage. the other story is 7 million people without power. windchills in the 40s. you have people in their houses sleeping in the same bed with covers and blankets on top of them trying to keep warm. the storm sits over buffalo and will slowly exit. not soon enough. that's a look it's mostly a rain event. but umbrellas needed. >>> take a look at the radar and the soggy trick-or-treat forecast for the northwest a little later in the show. >> thanks so much. >>> also coming up, the presidential election is less than 140 hours away. sandy could end up being the major factor in choosing our next president. >>> plus years of medical research at one of the nation's top colleges destroyed by sandy. much more ahead this morning on "early today." >
of gasoline as opposed to the producer, and some other hurricanes like katrina and irene before, they've hit an area that has been a big producer of oil, whereas really, in the northeast, they are the consumers of all of that gasoline, and so demand has dropped, but the supply hasn't really dropped as much. > > so the demand is dropping, especially as people are stuck home and not going to offices for instance. > > right. flights are canceled, and people are not driving around as you said, so the demand there has dropped, and that, interestingly enough, has pushed some prices in the southeast region down even further because that oil that usually would have gone to the northeast has dropped off a little bit. > > so much of this boils down to what's going on with the refineries. so what do you anticipate there? you know, we think that this is going to be just a temporary shutdown in the northeast region, and that, as i said earlier, we are going to continue to see prices continue to drop, and demand will come back up after the hurricane is through. > > quick predictions now: where do you see
katrina devastated new orleans, it seems all the relevant agencies were ready this time, up to speed, especially fema, the federal emergency management agency, that was criticized in 2005 being widely lauded now. the president himself was up all night from monday to tuesday in the situation room in the white house monitoring the situation. now he is touring the disaster areas, especially in new jersey, so he seemed very much concerned and seemed to do everything he could to help the people. he has been applauded even by republican competitors for this. one of his harshest critics has always been new jersey governor chris christie, and this man said that obama was doing an outstanding job. >> elections are right around the corner next week, and campaigns have resumed. it is a difficult question to ask, but who has actually profited from the situation? >> for mitt romney, it is a difficult situation because national disaster times are times when politics are supposed to be put aside, so campaigning too early might hurt him, but it is the only thing he can do because he does not have an
reinforce or under d undermine that narrative. in the case of george w. bush in 2006 with hurricane katrina, he campaigned as basically a compassionate conservative. but his actions during the whole katrina mess proved that he was otherwise. >> because you have that lasting image of president bush and when he said that thing about his fema director, way to go, brownie, or whatever he said. that sticks in people's minds to this day. >> right. that would be a defining sound bite of his entire presidency. granted, it's unfair, but that's what sticks in people's minds. >> in your mind, has president obama made the right move, wrong move? what do you think? >> i think he has made the appropriate move here. he hasn't been too over. that's the key here. you can't be overtly political in how you respond to these kinds of disasters. he obviously will accrue some benefits because he's acting aas commanders in chief are supposed to act and help people on a broad basis. as the remarks of governor christie of new jersey proved, this is a -- he gets bipartisan support out of this disaster. that has to he
what is going on. and the first thing we noticed was how much it felt like katrina. but it was much different in casualties with katrina, but then looking in the windows, and seeing men, women and children waving at us. most of them were smiling. the reason most of them are smiling is because the water has gone down a bit. the feeling is that it will continue to go down and they will be perhaps to start walking out of their houses tomorrow. it's not guaranteed yet. we saw scores of people waving at us, waiting to get out of their homes. we saw people trying to leave on their own. they seemed confused. a few people were driving through the water and so the cars got stuck and they could not push them. a police officer got out and went to rescue the people. took the woman on his shoulder and brought her to the shovel we were sitting in and the mayor and i helped to pull the woman in and the two other people in, that's the situation. it's incredible. right now, there are people in the dark and cold, waiting to be able to come out of their homes safely. >> it's amazing as you tell it. ga
's katrina, ike, andrew, irene, they're all late august or early september storms where the vacation industrial was more vulnerable. right now, it will be interesting to see the tradeoff from staples into discretionary spending. getting into the holiday season. >> just looking at the trading today, when you look at exposed sectors like insurance, retail and construction, do you think we'll get the moves that you would assume or not? >> i'd be careful expecting too big a move here. partly because of volumes, as i mentioned earlier. it's unclear about how exposed these stocks are going to be. i think expect some mixed messages here throughout the day. >> we're seeing certainly the insurers hold up well. there's a sense they may benefit from firmer pricing next year, something households should be aware of, potentially facing higher premiums as a result of this. >> very difficult to pull a trade out of the storm today. >> just one thing about gasoline, it seems to have already moved slightly. anything on the energy side? >> i think if you go back to the past oil flash gasoline spikes re
